|Ms. Honolulu "Lulu" Bender|
Executive producer Jack Bender with Lulu
|Date of Birth||Unknown|
Ms. Honolulu, aka "Lulu", is a female Airedale-terrier mix adopted by Lost executive producer and director Jack Bender from the Hawaiian Humane Society. She now belongs to costume designer Roland Sanchez. Lulu is often seen around the set of Lost and has become a mascot of sorts to the cast and crew. She avoided rules restricting animals from sets by being cast in "I Do", although Lulu was not visible in the final cut of that episode. Mary Dang, Bender's assistant, cares for "Lulu" off-set.
